Kids' Mittens and Hat Donations Needed

Collection bin for donations of kids' mittens and hats at Northfield Yarn.

One of our customers has generously offered to collect donations of kids' mittens and hats to be distributed at Northfield schools to children who need them.

We have a collection bin set up in the shop. Donations can be dropped off before Thanksgiving -- now that the winter weather has begun, items will be collected and distributed a few times this month.

Donations to NOT have to be handmade; commercially made items are fine! 

Mittens are especially needed.  We suggest the following patterns, which are free, quick and come in many sizes: Northfield Yarn's Embellished Mittens and Tin Can Knits' Maize Mitts and World's Simplest Mittens.
